We envision a world in which anyone and everyone can conceive and compose emotionally effective stories. Our tools help all authors, established or aspiring, to develop stories for stage, page or screen. Beemgee enables people and companies to develop narratives that spellbind the audience.

Story Development & Developmental Editing

We provide individual authors and storytellers with help and advice on the structural aspects of their stories. We focus on story dramaturgy, plot structure and character development, which we assess via a Beemgee project. We do not evaluate text style!

If you’d like to enquire about our developmental editing service, which includes one-on-one online sessions, drop us a line: If you decide to book, we’ll arrange a call schedule to suit your needs. Of course, if you happen to be in Berlin, Germany, we can meet in person.

If you require work on the manuscript, we have a network of friends and partners and we’re happy to broker editing and translation services without any fee.

Talks, Workshops and Seminars

Storytelling is the basis for much human communication. We understand the world in narratives. Hence an explicit and conscious knowledge of how stories work is useful in many different fields – not just for authors.

We often hold talks and workshops on storytelling, dramaturgy and archetypal story structure. While adapting our approach to the audience, these are the kinds of things we convey:

  • problem-solving in storytelling
  • the outer surface of narrative structure
  • the deep structure of transformation, creating meaning in stories
  • the recipient as protagonist
  • the chain of recipient emotions that makes a story a satisfying experience
  • vital structural components

We have worked with various institutions, such as the Independent German Authors association (FDA), the Frankfurt Book Fair, Leipzig Book Fair, and Contec Mexico.

We’re happy to tell your audience everything we know about storytelling.
